Ordinary black holes result from the collapse of very large burnt out stars and therefore originate as ordinary matter. However once formed they can capture anything subject to gravity including non-baryonic matter, photons, etc.

The origin of supermassive black holes is still a subject of study, but once formed they also capture anything subject to gravity.
